We felt that this cruise was the perfect blend of relaxation and travel. Unlike a transatlantic crossing, the ports were buffered on either side by sea days.

I've included a detailed review of our room in the ratings.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)

We were upgraded to this room (we booked an inside cabin). As an upgrade, it was fantastic, as we had a clear view of the ocean and sometimes glimpses of the sunset. We also appreciate the larger closet space Princess offers as compared to Royal Caribbean. However, we would not choose this cabin if we were paying for an outside room because the two fold-down bunks do not fold up into the ceiling. We had a few bumped heads in the night! My parents were also in an obstructed view cabin (E605), and the layout was much better (the window was not located at the head of the bed), and did not have fold-down bunks. The shower did not have much storage space for toiletries, but I brought some plastic suction hooks, which helped enormously. Magnetic hooks for the room were also helpful, as there were not many towel hooks in the room.

Embarkation was a breeze in this large facility.
